BREAKING NEWS: FIFA passes it verdict on South Africa’s protest against Ghana

Posted by

World Football governing body, FIFA has passed its verdict on the protest lodged by South Africa against Ghana after their final group G game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup a fortnight ago at the Cape Coast Stadium.

SAFA after the 1-0 defeat to Ghana in the final Group G game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup lodged an official complaint to FIFA against the performance of Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye.

The South African FA protested that the match was manipulated and wanted the game to be replayed at a neutral venue and for action to be taken against Maguette Ndiaye and his colleagues.

However, FIFA after listening to Ghana’s defense statement and sitting on the case has thrown out the protest from SAFA because it did not meet the requirements under article 46 and 14 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and Regulations of the Preliminary Competition of the FIFA World Cup 2022 respectively.

This confirms Ghana’s place in the final qualifying round of the World Cup to be staged in Qatar. The draw for the qualifying round will be held on January 22, 2022.

As it stands, Ghana is likely to face one of Algeria, Senegal, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia.
